"the guardian" story provides a 32-page training guide showing how the xkeyscore program works, sucking up data from 150 sites from around the world that can show e-mails, phone calls sites being visited, words being searched. snowden discussed a surveillance program this extensive when his story erupted last month. >> i sitting at my desk certainly had the
of the first ladies evolved from martha washington until this day? it sounds like there are a lot of similarities, really. it depends on the individual first lady as to how. >> it is. actually, i think that the first three first ladies -- martha, abigail, and dolly -- were far harder working and more actively involved in their husband's lives and in their careers. and my own opinion was that when we stopped being colonies and started being a country, maybe by the 1800's or so, that generation growing up, we were growing to be more -- they were more prominent. they were very prosperous. men wanted their wives to have all sorts of lovely things. they catered to them a lot more. they didn't have to work quite as hard. ladies at that time, they started, i guess being frailer. >> 1857 the key supreme court -- the dred scott supreme court decision on slavery. in 1858, the lecompton constitution. in 1860, the pony express was established. and in 1861, the creation of the confederate states of america. this white house was dealing with enormous problems but not very effectively. how did t
